Here are my comments on the Millennium coal export terminal. I support the project and the jobs and tax revenues it will provide.
I appreciate the time and effort that must go into creating an environmental impact statement. Coal should not be treated differently than other commodities. The opposition will use the precedent set by these studies to justify why every commodity must study global impacts. This is an abuse of SEPA that was never intended to be used to kill the export of a legal commodity.
It is important that the public have the ability to comment on projects of this nature as the affects will last for years to come. Thank you for the opportunity to comment and please see that this project is worthy and should be allowed progress forward and develop.
